Reminsicing --Old days

Recommended Posts

;) Remembering the Houston I grew up in the early 70's thru the late 80's.

I live in East TN now but I grew up in SW Houston in Windsor Village in the early 70's. I remember going to Peppermint Park off the 610 Loop. Kiddie Park off 610 and Main. The original Astrodome where I watched Roy Rogers and Dale Evans perform and Dale lost her wig. :o I am telling my age now. The Roy Rogers restaurant near Joske's in the Galleria. OH my this is so sweet.

I remember on Sundays my daddy would take us to the Sage Department Store it was huge. I remember going to Fed Mart in Pasadena with my grandmother. I remember Astroworld when everything was orange. The main attraction was a huge boot that you could slide down.

The drive-in on South Main McClendon Drive In wow.

Weingartens and we rode the horses for a dime. Games People Play we went every Wednesday after school to play Pac Man and Asteroids. ha ha

Showbiz Pizza Swenson's Ice Cream Parlor. Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor in the Galleria.

Oh my goodness memories.

Downtown Houston Foley's department store windows decorated with the animated figures and fake snow. I use to love it when my parents would take us down there to see the christmas lights.

Oh the days before playstations internet and cable tv.
